Think what you will of Jay Z, but he is providing a wonderful service for deserving students all over America. Please share this information with everyone you know, as you never know who you may be helping. Some of the lost in our society discussed so much on this blog are some of the very ones who can benefit from this information.
Jay Z’s Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation
is doing its part to help under served students get a higher education. The foundation offers scholarships to single mothers, children who attend alternative schools, students who have earned a GED, students with grade point averages of 2.0 and students who have previously been incarcerated, etc., but desire a higher education. This group is generally not the recipient of college scholarships and is typically ignored by the Board of Education. If you or someone you know is a high school senior, college student, and/or between the ages of 18-25 pursuing studies at a vocational or trade school, you may be eligible for the Shawn Carter Scholarship. All applicants must be a US Citizen and complete the on-line application
no later than the published deadline date, which is May 31, 2013.
